Sclerotherapy Vein Removal at Vein Care Melbourne

Sclerotherapy treatment requires no anaesthetic, making it easy to recover from the surgery. A detergent solution is injected via micro-needle directly into the affected vein, causing the vein wall to collapse. The immune system responds to support the natural healing process as the collapsed vein is dissolved and absorbed.

The total treatment time is approximately 30 minutes. Depending on the severity, multiple treatments per site may be required for the best results. The same goes for microsclerotherapy, which is identical to traditional sclerotherapy except it’s specialised for tiny spider veins in the legs or face.

Benefits of Sclerotherapy Treatment for Varicose Veins

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy offers tremendous advantages for the treatment of small reticular and spider veins. It is very fast, easy on the patient, and typically provides visibly noticeable results in just a few weeks. It also leverages the body’s natural healing ability to remove unsightly veins and restore a youthful and appealing look, improving self-confidence and daily comfort, too.

Sclerotherapy Preparation

Before sclerotherapy treatment in Melbourne, it’s best to keep these few instructions and recommendations in mind:

  • Do not stop taking medications unless otherwise instructed.
  • Do not shave legs or apply moisturiser on the day of sclerotherapy treatment.
  • Wear loose pants and comfortable shoes to the appointment.
  • Vein treatment like sclerotherapy should be avoided if you plan to fly overseas in the next three weeks.
  • It’s best to stop smoking before sclerotherapy treatment.
  • Pre-medication isn’t necessary, but you can take two paracetamol tablets with food if you’re concerned about low pain tolerance.

Sclerotherapy Recovery Process

Not only is the sclerotherapy cost affordable, but the fast recovery time is also attractive. Adverse reactions are minimal, and any minor discomfort at the injection site can be minimised by local pressure. After sclerotherapy in Melbourne, patients can usually drive and/or return to work, although this should always be confirmed with the sclerotherapy vein removal specialist.

Having my varicose veins was something I had thought about for a while but was hesitant. After my initial consult with Dr Dhillon, all my fears and doubts were put to rest.Dr Dhillon thoroughly explained all the procedures and answered my questions , so much so that I booked my procedures the very next day. Over the next few months Jo and Dr Dhillon really took care of me.Dr Dhillon explained everything he was doing at the time and always ensured that I was comfortable with the procedure. The results have certainly exceeded my expectations and not having bulging varicose veins on the back of my leg has certainly made me more comfortable wearing dresses. I cannot recommend Dr Dhillon highly enough, a very talented, personable and humble man.

Excellent to the highest standard ! I would have to go back in time 25 years since my legs looked this good, all the bubbly varicose veins gone. Everything is explained and costed beforehand, this removed all the anxiety before I underwent surgery. After every surgical procedure a review was carried out a week or so later. There's quite a number of appointments involved to cover everything on both legs but the appointment schedule has a degree of flexibility. It's a bit of a journey at the start but you'll be glad you stayed the journey to the end when you see the results.

I had bad varicose veins in my legs and decided after 20 odd years to do something about it. I did my research found Dr Dhillion on line and saw the amount of years he had been practising in this type of treatment. I booked a consultation with him and he took me through the process of what to expect. Over the next six months i had three types of treatment and the results are just amazing. No more self conscious moments when summer arrived and my legs don't ache or itch anymore. I cannot thank Dr Dhillion enough and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get rid of varicose veins and feel so much better about themselves, i do. Thank you Dr Dhillion for everything you have done for me and for fixing my legs. Special mention to Jo and Abbie on reception who were always kind and helpful with any appointments and queries i had. Thank you all 🙂
